No, there's absolutely no reason to treat a question differently if a user has been blocked from asking questions on a particular SE site. If a question isn't a good fit here on Programmers, here's a good workflow: The first thing to look for is questions that aren't a good fit anywhere. If it's primarily opinion based, too broad, or unclear, it's highly ...

Question bans are on a per-site basis and are based on your asking history on that site. Your reputation on Stack Overflow has no bearing on your standing here, where you have asked 3 questions (here, here, and here for you and 10k+ users). All three have a net negative score, two were closed, and all three were deleted. It's not surprising that this ...

You weren't banned. Your account has an automatic block for asking new questions due to your other questions being down voted, closed, and/or deleted. You should read this post on Meta Stack Overflow to learn more about the block and how to overcome it. At this time, you can still post answers, and posting high quality answers is one method to overcome the ...

I'm working on something related to this right now, so it's worthwhile to pull the data. More on that in a bit, but first... 1380 questions asked here in the last 30 days, from 1219 distinct accounts, of which 1100 have/had accounts on Stack Overflow 184 of whom hit some kind of block on Stack Overflow during the past 60 days (this includes not just the ...

You have asked three questions on Programmers, all of them deleted: Looking for an RSS Video Feed Job Application Assesments - Advice Q: Applying for a patent or copyright The first two were downvoted and closed, and the third one you deleted yourself a couple of minutes after you posted it. I don't think there's room for improvement in any of your ...

The last question was closed for being too broad (which is not, it asks how I can do a particular thing with MongoDB that just didn't got answered). Maybe you have a marginal question there that can be improved. Questions are closed so that they can be either improved or deleted, not necessarily just deleted. That question's title says: Best way to ...

Information on whether or not a user is question-banned is considered privileged, moderator-only information, and even then, only on sites where you have diamond moderator privileges. There are a number of reasons for this, the most notable being that, if this information were publicly available, folks could potentially use it to game the banning system.

Comments suggesting asker to try their luck at Stack Overflow tend to read as assumption that they are unaware of this site. This may feel awkward to asker if they are indeed an active user over there. For such comments to be helpful, it makes sense to first check if a user you want to address them to really needs to be educated that Stack Overflow exists. ...

You've asked 10 questions: Please give some references for examples of class hierarchies (score of -5, closed and deleted) Demonstrate Polymorphism with Tic Tac Toe where students submit player code?

Since this applies to all StackExchange sites, it's covered on Meta StackExchange in this FAQ Q&A. This is the part that answers your question: Before you do anything else, fix your existing posts! As noted above, down-votes cast by the rest of the community factor into the ban - so the single best thing you can do to get it lifted is to address ...

While running a test on Stack Overflow, there were some questions about whether we were driving traffic to Programmers, so I decided to rerun some of the numbers in Shog’s original answer and compare the 30 days prior to the test to the testing period. Prior to the Stack Overflow Test First, let's look at the 30 days of activity here on Programmers prior to ...

I am sorry to hear that you are upset about the way you are being received on the site. Just to clarify, you are not actually banned. What you are experiencing is that you are temporarily blocked from asking questions based on a number of downvoted questions that were asked over the last several months. I see that you have attempted to delete this ...

First of all, the people taking these actions don't perceive them as hostile, because they are not intended as hostile. I have no idea how to change that perception. Second, the algorithm that blocked you was based on a time when downvotes were mostly reserved for serious issues, not the current environment where it's mostly a result of being unable to ...

You've asked more than 3 questions here. You have asked a total of 8 questions. Of these 8 questions, a total of 4 have a negative score and 1 has a neutral score. Your overall net score on questions is -3. In addition, 4 questions were closed (including some of the deleted ones) and 2 were migrated. This does indeed warrant the automatic quality messages.

The warning is designed to ensure that you pay attention to the question you ask and to try to ensure that you ask something that does belong on the site. It is based on your entire asking history - deleted questions included. Looking through your questions, I am seeing one bad deleted question (from 2013, which is not recent enough for you to see in the ...

Meta Stack Exchange has a good writeup about what to do when you are automatically blocked from creating new questions or new answers. You should first attempt to fix your posts, if you can. Some aren't salvageable, but others are. If you aren't sure, asking about your questions on Meta or in chat The block also only affects one type of post - if you're ...

My two questions were not even particularly unsuitable Your latest question is a legal question, and therefore unsuitable. Your previous questions also have quality problems (read the comments there for more information). This leads me to believe that the bot is not acting overzealous, and that the warning it issued was justified.

How does raising a mod flag help here? What do you want moderators to do with these flags? Whatever that action is, can we just do it automatically when a close vote or flag is raised?

The two likely questions that contributed to the question ban were these two, both of which received a pretty significant net negative score: https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/228891 - -5 https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/219843 - -4 You are also not blocked from answering questions, so contributing answers (...

You have asked 4 questions on the site. 3 of them are deleted, all 3 have downvotes to them. The remaining question is not stellar (single upvote). Looks like they mostly don't follow the on-topic/off-topic rules laid out in the help center, so not that surprising.

Personally I think any user that is question banned on StackOverflow, should get an automatic question ban on Programmers and Database Admin. I don't think a ban on one side should ban a user on all sites, as some sites have very different rules on how a question is asked. But a case can be made that a user who is unwilling or unable to learn what a ...

Based on your past questions, system decided to warn that you may be approaching question ban. This is described in more details in Warn new users when they ask a question after a previous question is closed, downvoted, or deleted at MSE (bold font in below quote is mine): Starting today, we are going to show a warning to folks who are about to post a ...
